The Supreme Court has dismissed a suit brought by two students of the University of Ghana over the decision by authorities of the University to charge road tolls.

According to the Supreme Court their decision was based on the fact that it had no jurisdiction to make any pronouncement on the matter because beyond their remit to pass laws.

The two, Ernest Victor Apau and Musah Mustapha, per their reliefs, were seeking the court to perpetually restrain the university and its agents from charging motorists who ply the university’s routes.

The applicants in their argument indicated that the action of the respondents had violated Article 174 (1) of the 1992 Constitution, because the tolls were introduced without an Act of Parliament. They accordingly, urged the highest court of the land to declare the action of the university as unconstitutional.

The University of Ghana was being sued as an entity.

Joined to the suit was the Attorney General.
